Three Hierarchical Optimization Design for Power Distributional Planet Gear Drive Based on Matlab
According to the theory of planet gear drive and the actual design requirements of ship reducer, the mathematical model of optimization for power distributional planet gear drive is set up, the optimization design variables, the optimization objective function and the restraint conditions are definited. On the base of the establishment of three hierarchical optimization method, to take advantage of its powerful optimization toolbox in Matlab, combine the basic algorithm of optimization design, optimize respectively power distributional planet gear drive from three single-objective optimization for the lightest weight, the smallest center distance, most efficient and from one multi-objective optimization of the lightest weight and smallest center distance. The optimal results showed that ship reducer weight could be further reduced.
